These exciting evenings are a completely new combination of education and entertainment! You’ll learn about the biggest matters in your own life through wonderful talks that Eli Siegel gave—on love and the visual arts, economics and comedy, and so much more. Here are just a few titles: “Jane Eyre; or, This Girl Had Good Will,” “Humor and Strangeness,” “Sculpture: Weight as Lightness,” “Ownership, Strikes, Unions,” and “Poetry and Love.”
You’ll also hear authorities in their fields—including musicians, painters, architects—present vivid examples of how the opposites that are together in the arts explain people’s most immediate questions. And in the dramatic reenactments of the lessons Mr. Siegel gave, you’ll hear an unprecedented understanding of people’s feelings—our hopes and fears. These lessons are the basis of the consultations that take place now.
Upcoming Dramatic Presentations—
